] i've tried to understand why president obama seems so determined to push a government run healthcare system that fewer and fewer americans want. instead of focussing on the loss of mills of jobs -- millions of jobs and the highest unemployment rate in generation, as well as mounting debt. why would he be doubting a job killing tax and cap energy plan when it would kill off many small businesses that are barely alive now? why would he hesitate for months on a plan from afghanistan when we have generals requesting troop enhancements an americans risking their lives. why would he keep pushing to spend more of our tax dollars in stimulus schemes that have done little over than provide political favors for democrats in congress? one of my long-time policy advisors and friends suggested a reason and i think she's right. this administration in all honesty is not focussed on recovery. but redistribution. the main focus really is to spread the wealth around. that's exactly what barack obama told joe the plumber. but we didn't realize the extent to which he really wanted to go. the healthcare
